in russia and exploded in mid-air about 20 miles up. it shattered windows and the blast was brighter than multiple suns. in fact, subsequent measurements of how much energy it contained rivaled 30 times that of the hiroshima bomb. the reason why everything wasn't just pancaked flattened from it because it exploded so high up in the atmosphere. all that was left was the energy that remained after it diluted into the space in which it exploded. later in the day, another asteroid that had a close approach, which we have known for about a year knowing the laws of physics and trajectory, you can see where it was going to come. that was of interest because it not only became between us and the moon, we have tracked many that did that. this one came inside our technological space. it came closer than our orbiting communication satellites. that one you take note of. that asteroid is half the size of a football field and the one that hit and exploded over russia, that is about a third of that size. we have no capacity to protect earth from things that small. >> so, what should we be doing? i mean,
